South Korean media reports BLACKPINK’s Jennie is in talks to join the cast of HBO Max’s series The Idol. Created by Euphoria’s Sam Levinson, Reza Fahim and The Weeknd, fans began to speculate something was in the works after Jennie was spotted sharing a meal with The Weeknd in LA last year. Aside from Jennie, The Weekend will star as himself along with Troye Sivan and Lily-Rose Depp.
The Idol is a pop idol-themed series following the life of a young pop singer who falls for a mysterious night club owner. Although nothing has been confirmed, sources claim Jennie will be appearing in a small supporting role or a cameo.
Meanwhile, after a two-year hiatus, BLACKPINK is expected to be making their showbiz comeback later this year.
